Tickets & Tokens
Pay for all food, drink, oysters, and clams with $5 tokens, which you can purchase at the event for cash or credit.
$15 entrance tickets get you into the event with a door prize drawing, and are required for humans 16 and up
TBD whether we'll sell any tickets at the gate this year. If we do: day-of ticket sales will start around 12:30, after we get a sense of how crowded the event is. It is not a good idea to drive out here if you don't have tickets.
There will be EMT's on site, and first aid kits & fire extinguishers throughout the event
Everyone who walks out on the tideflats has to sign a safety waiver, and hear a speech about how to stay safe on the flats. Short version: watch where you step, stay out of fenced off areas, and don't let your kids run around.
VERY IMPORTANT: Do not park along 101. We have hordes of volunteers lined up to help you find a safe parking spot
